Simple DIY Crafts that Let Kids Be Creative and Expressive


Here at Kindermusik, we love sharing tips that help make parenting a little easier and also help bring out the best in your kids – including their creativity and self-expressiveness!  After all, one of the gifts of learning music and participating in a weekly music class is the beautiful way in which self-expression and creativity are both fostered and encouraged.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we thought you’d be inspired to enjoy some of these simple Valentine’s themed, DIY crafts with your children.  And by the way, we’d love for you to share pictures of your results on the Kindermusik Facebook page. #KindermusikCreativity
